Happy Valentine's Day

We are celebrating with pillow pets, books, a little candy... and strep throat for Allison. Poor girl. She keeps insisting "I'm not sick, I'm happy!" Strep test proved otherwise...Meds have been started, so hopefully she will feel better soon (and not share with her brother!)
Got a couple pics before church yesterday. Operator error with the camera- had it on the wrong setting so pics are a little blurry.

Date Night!

Last night was date night at our house. Jason and Allison went to the Father/Daughter banquet at church and Braden took me to Chuch E Cheese. From what I was told the banquet was very nice, and my date had a blast with the 5 million other kids at Chuck E Cheese.

Way to Go, Weatherman!


"I'm cooooold.

Princesses in their pink snowsuits

In my many years of living, I have heard a lot of weathermen give a prediction of a "big snow" and then we get a dusting at best. Well, props to the weatherman this time! I think we got almost 7 inches by the time it was all said and done. Quite a snow for the south!

Snow "Storm" Part 2

10:30 am

Allison insisted on going outside, and although Braden and I didn't exactly jump at the idea, we went outside to check out what all the hype is about. We are getting a pretty good snow!

Snow "Storm" Part 1


1st Snow "storm" indoor activity : Destroy the kitchen with beans and every truck and kitchen tool available

Little Rock is predicted to get 3-7 inches. The town is shut down (except for Jason's office!) Schools were all called off yesterday. We have been warned by the news to have plenty of flashlights and non-perishable foods and can goods. Apparently people did just that because grocery stores were swamped yesterday. I totally believe that we are getting a good snow (for the south), but at the same time, I don't think we are going to be stuck for weeks! It is supposed to be 63 degrees on Monday!

Good Friends, Good Times

I flew to Houston for a long weekend with some girlfriends, Becky and Carrie. Becky is a friend from Illionis, and so is Carrie, but she lives in Houston now. I was really looking forward to seeing Meredith too, but she got news the day we were going to see her that another pancreas had been found for her. Bittersweet, because I was hoping to see her, but so glad she was able to get the pancreas she was needing.
We had lots of fun, and lots of laughs. Thank you so much, Carrie, for being a wonderful hostess!
Special thanks to Jason for keeping the kids all weekend! Also thanks to Jason's mom for keeping Allison for me on Monday. I appreciate it so much!
